This tab of the FxCop action configures output settings.


Types to analyze: Specifies the types to analyze (optional). This option disables analysis of assemblies, namespaces, and resources; only the specified types and their members are included in the analysis.  The list can use the wildcard character * at the end of the name to select multiple types.


Analysis report filename: Specifies the filename for the analysis report (optional).  If the file exists, it is overwritten without warning. If no items are reported by the analysis and the file does not exist, it is not created. If the file exists, it is deleted.  By default, the file includes an xml-stylesheet processing instruction that references FxCopReport.xsl.


XSL file referenced by analysis report: Specifies the XSL or XSLT file that is referenced by the xml-stylesheet processing instruction in the analysis report (optional).  This option overrides the default XSL file applied to the report.  Choose none to generate a report without a style sheet processing instruction.


Apply XSL transformation before saving: Applies the specified XSL transformation to the analysis report before saving the file.


Include summary report: Includes a summary report with the informational messages.  The summary shows the number of items found, how many items were new, and the running time for the analysis.


Verbose output: Outputs verbose information during analysis.


Send analysis output to Output pane: Directs analysis output to the Output pane. By default, the XSL file FxCopConsoleOutput.xsl is applied to the output before it is logged.


XSL file to apply to analysis output: Specifies the XSL or XSLT file that contains a transformation to be applied to the analysis output before it is displayed in the Output pane (optional).  This option overrides the default XSL file applied to the analysis output.
